Frances Yeo

Principal Psychologist​ & Programme Director​

“I see many children who struggle with learning. They are not confident because of hidden learning difficulties and struggle in schools. From working with these kids, I have seen many of them overcome their challenges if we can create the right environments for them. By making lessons engaging through multi-sensory activities, these children can do much better as compared to traditional classroom learning. We founded Thomson Kids to provide the appropriate learning environments based on insights from research and our collective clinical experience. “​

“Teaching children with learning differences gives me a deep sense of satisfaction; watching them progress and sharing positive praise with parents are my rewarding moments of teaching

Yang Wanling

Specialist Teacher – Specialised English Programme

“When I first started teaching reading to preschoolers, I encountered a number of children requiring special attention. With patience, close observation, and different approaches, I was able to engage these children and help them overcome their learning difficulties. I find it truly rewarding and believe that every learner can succeed. I believe no child should be left behind. Therefore, students with learning difficulties should be guided, using the right methodology to help them feel included in the classroom. I hope to work with more children to help support them in bridging the gap so they could journey alongside their peers.”

“Teaching is understanding that each student is unique and designing lessons to accommodate students’ different learning styles. I find it rewarding to see students with learning difficulties show improvements in Chinese language through the multi-sensory activities and the scaffolded curriculum that we have planned at Thomson Kids”.
